So last weekend I was in Philadelphia PA to get away from DC for a weekend and I met the nicest person. His name was Nick Dellavella and he is a rep. for Three Olives Vodka. If you can’t tell by reading this and my other blogs you’ll know that I am 100% an Absolute girl and never give other vodkas a chance anymore. Anyways, Nick was very cute and friendly and convinced me to give three olives a try, including the brand new Three Olives “The Dewd” lemon lime vodka. Here’s what happened.
Not only did I end up over doing it and drinking Three Olives Vodka all night, I woke up without a hangover too! That is exactly why I also go straight to Absolute instead of Stoli, Grey Goose or Belvedere. They all leave me feeling like crap the next day. For some reason Absolute never did and after drinking Three Olives Vodka for two nights in a row, it left me feeling great in the morning. I have to say I am thoroughly impressed. The flavors come through very strong so you don’t really need mixers and you can blend them in with almost anything which is why I came up with a few Three Olives Lemon Lime Vodka cocktails that I wanted to share with all of you. Please remember that alcohol can be dangerous and is illegal for people under 21 in the USA so please drink responsibly if you try these drinks. I know I will be drinking them responsibly tonight!
The Three Olives Lemon Lime Sake Cucumber Martini.
This drink is absolutely to die for. What I do is I freeze a martini glass so it gets that fabulous frosty look on the glass. Then I chill saki, add in the Three Olives Lemon Lime Vodka and a little splash of soda water (The soda water is if you don’t like it strong). Then I shake the martini shaker and pour into the glass. To garnish it I take a cucumber wheel and I float it in the martini. I also take a second one and lay it over the side of the martini glass. This drink is amazing with dinner, fish, sushi, some chicken and for fun with the girls. I love it because its salty from the saki, sweet and sour from the vodka and light and fresh from the cucumber.
Lemon Lime Three Olives Sangria
This is now one of my favorite cocktails to make. What I do is take a bottle of melony chardonnay, Three Olives Lemon Lime Dewd Vodka and honeydew and cantaloupe melons. 24 hours before you need the drink, scoop out balls of honeydew and cantaloupe. Now put them in a glass and pour lemon lime vodka into the glasses. Now refridgerate for 12 hours and then place in the freezer for 12. Now take a large pitcher and pour your wine into it. Take the frozen melon balls and drop a few in. (You can also freeze peaches and drop them in to for extra flavor and fun). Now take a few more of the frozen lemon lime vodka balls and place them in the serving cups. Now you have a fun and fruity version of sangria to serve to friends.
Lemon Lime Soda
This is a simple and extremely low calorie cocktail. Take your Three Olives Lemon Lime Dewd Vodka and pour 2 ozs. into a glass over ice. Now fill the rest of the glass with soda water (calorie free) and top with a lemon and a lime wheel. You now have a refreshing and tasty lemon lime soda that you can drink at the bar.
I’ve fallen in love with Three Olives vodka thanks to Nick Dellavella. I have a few more Three Olives Vodka drink recipes, but they will have to wait for another day. I can’t wait to share my slushy cocktail recipes and lemon lime belini with you as well. I’ll probably post them after Labor Day when I have my friends try them in Rehoboth Beach.
